    Fun Car To Drive — Awesome power on tap. Compared to the volvo I currently run its more powerful but less refined especially in the transmission. Because of the 3.8 v6 its also a gas guzzler. Great car but gonna mod it to give me a smoother performance.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power

    Cons: Gas guzzler

    1997 Pontiac Grand Prix Gt Coupe. — I liked that it was black. I murdered it out by blacking out the tail lights, rims, and badges. The GT has a good amount of torque for 200hp, it's about 230lbs.ft. of torque. The GTP is boosted with a Supercharger, and puts out 240hp and 280lbs.ft. of torque. If I would get another it would be a 1998-2001 GTP coupe, the 4 door is not nearly as good looking and mean looking as the coupe.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Decent power and torque, mean looking vehicle.

    Cons: It's a Pontiac.

    Great Car If You Have The Money — Comfortable, fast, Needs work just like any other car, Expensive on gas. Very fun to drive. The car is very fast from acceleration. Braking is OK if you have upgraded rotors. Handling is great because of its Wide stance. Gets up to 200 in no time :)

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Fast

    Cons: Gas milaege

    Amazing Ride If You Use The Gas Pedal Correctly! — I have had this car coming on ten years. Got this car in 2000. It was in mint condition but the years have gotten to her. Starting to rust in the usual places. But i would recommend it to anyone that loves performance on the roads from acceleration to braking from going 80 to 40 in less then 3 seconds.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: acceleration

    Cons: maintenace is starting to go up on parts!

    Keep'n Grand Prix Alive — Don't expect it to keep purring past100K. Performance is excellent with slight, but expected, powersteer issue when accelerating (Front Wheel Drive) "Wide Body" was to indicate that it corners well; unfortunately it suffers from understeer. Overall, I like it. Aftermarket parts would make this car a screamer.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Performance but reasonable to insure

    Cons: automatic transmission only

    It Is A Very Fun Car To Drive, Relatively Easy To Work On — this car is my first car and i handles very easily. it is a very smooth ride and aside from a few minor deer accidents has performed flawlessly. I love the rumble of the 3800 V-6 engine and it is always reliable

    Pros: FUN!!!!

    Cons: Govenor at 105

    I <3 My Pontiac. Even The Bailout Nazi Can't Out-think Gm. Just Wait... The G8, Back With A Bowtie! — 12 years old and still kicking ass. It corners like a champ, and with a hefty Buick 3.8L under the hood, there's plenty of power when you need it, and more than enough to enjoy every moment of it. American automotive ingenuity at its finest.

    Pros: MY $, for MY COUNTRY, with MY GM.  

    Cons: You're an import fan (a.k.a. treasonous communist)

    Best Pontiac — Ive owned many chevys, a lexus, and a couple others, this is by far my favorite. Lots of room, plenty of speed, and handles like nothing else. I put Dark Tints, and Black rims, and as you can see a few things to dress up the front end.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: No HUD

    My Pontiac Grand Prix — It caught on fire spontaneously in an empty parking lot when the temperature was 7 below zero. Now it is missing a hood and an engine but still has a great rust free body. I wish I had had a fire extinguisher.

    Pros: Great car, fast, nice handling

    Cons: Caught on fire for no reason
